Q:Will the "shuffle queue" feature mess with my scheduled posts? As in, things that are slated to happen at a specific time? Or does it only change the order of the unscheduled, queued posts?
Missing e's new Shuffle Queue feature will only randomize the order of queued posts for which you have not manually specified a post time. The ones for which you manually specified a time will not change.
However, when you click the shuffle button, the posts queued for a specific time will always end up displaying at the top of your page. Do not be alarmed, this is normal behaviour and their post times have not changed. The next time you reload your queue page, those posts will be displayed in chronological order with the shuffled posts.
Missing e version 2.2.15
Please note that I fixed a small bug from version 2.2.14 that I posted an hour or so ago.

Shuffle Queued Posts
I’ve added a new feature for Tumblrs who get a lot of use out of the Tumblr Queue: A Shuffle button.
This feature is disabled by default. To enable it, you need to go to the settings page (find out how) and enable it under the Dashboard Features tab, in the Dashboard Tweaks section.
Once activated, a Shuffle button (like the one you see above) will be added to the dashboard sidebar whenever you are on a Tumblr Queue page. Clicking it will randomize the order of queued posts currently loaded on the page.
Due to the way the Tumblr interface works, the Shuffle button can only randomize queued posts that are currently visible in the Queue page. However, you can use Tumblr’s “endless scrolling" dashboard feature to load as many queued posts as you want. The Shuffle button can then randomize a larger set of queued posts.
Note: The Shuffle button simply creates a new order for the posts and then asks Tumblr to do the re-ordering. Please remember that the Tumblr Queue is sometimes unreliable. Once the re-ordering is complete, the queue times you see will be accurate. Any queue delays or other issues you may encounter later on will most likely indicate a problem with the Tumblr Queue and not Missing e.
Transfer / Backup your Missing e settings
With the newest update to Missing e, you will be able to export your Missing e settings to a file and import them from a file. Whether you want to back up your preferred configuration for Missing e or transfer them automatically to multiple browsers and/or multiple computers, you will now be able to do so!
Note: Both copies of Missing e need to be version 2.2.15 or higher to transfer your settings.
If you are interested in learning how this feature was accomplished, you can read about it.
If you want the new version immediately, DO NOT uninstall and reinstall Missing e, instead, read the instructions on how to update:
Firefox users: Until the new version of the extension is reviewed by the Mozilla Add-Ons site, you can update just by installing the new version over top of your existing one from the versions page.
If version 2.2.15 or higher does not appear in the list, you can wait until later, or use this direct link to install.
